Super Winger With 2 Assists And 89.2 % Pass Accuracy: Should Liverpool Sign Him?

With Liverpool recently being linked with a move for the young Spaniard – Cristian Tello, we weigh up three reasons why or why not they should place a bid for him in January

Cristian Tello
Should Rodgers sign Tello?

1. Yes – Lack of Talented Wingers

Liverpool hasn’t been a place where wingers thrive in recent years, as Oussama Assaidi and Stewart Downing have failed, and they have also signed striker Fabio Borini to play-out wide, even though he is very much a central striker. Daniel Sturridge often starts as a winger but drops into the centre more than he should, though with 9 Premier League goals this season it is doubtful there will be many complaints about that. Tello would bring the extra bit of quality Liverpool need out wide to keep themselves in the hunt for a top four place, and as Rodgers deploys a more European style than most Premier League clubs, the transition should be seamless. Tello is also a good playmaker. Whoscored player database shows that his pass accuracy is 89.2 % and he also got 2 assists in 7 La Liga games.
